Baked Alaska (Earrings)

Usually for Halloween I just pull out my Comic Con costume and lovingly wear it again. This year, however, I've assembled my best fitted suit, peep toed pumps, and square glasses for a topical costume...


I sculpted the above Alaska-shaped earrings out of polymer clay, then baked 'em in the oven and painted them gold.

I made this oversize American Flag pin out of Shrinky Dinks. The finding is an old Siggraph pin (and to think I almost threw that schwag away).


Are you doing anything for Halloween?

You know, if you really wanted to be accurate you should have depicted all of the Aleutian Islands individually.

Just saying.

PICS! PICS! PICS! You can totally pull it off.

I'm going to be a Deadwood Whore, complete with laudanum bottle.
